Given that we do wonky things on the client side when cases are mixed
in the same path, I think it'd be very weird to make this behavior
optional. It's so highly unlikely that anyone is going to want apply
rules to "AuthZ" but not to "authz" - especially given that it
wouldn't have worked *at all* before anyway.
